I agree, but the problem I observed was caused by very slow rpm. It
did much more than just comparing version numbers or stuff like that.

If I remember it right, it took about 1-2 minutes to reject the older
(or somehow strange) package. When I stopped YaST2 and ran rpm from a
command line then the time was about 1-2 minutes, too. Correct
packages were installed quickly.

The book is also on the SuSE 7.1 CD1 (docu/book-en.pdf directory). I
just think that the chapter 15.2.10 (From 7.0 to 7.1), or the Web
pages it refers to, should contain more information.
